DAWN HO BAND

BIOGRAPHY

Currently residing in Melbourne, jazz and bossa nova singer Dawn Ho hails from Singapore.

She began her informal training in singing at the tender age of 8 with The Amazing Grace Presbyterian church choir. Her vocal timbre makes her a natural in doing jazz, bossa nova and samba numbers. Her style has been described as sophisticated and vibrant with a tinge of sexiness.

After 10 years of training and performing in the classical and choral genre, Dawn decided to follow her passion for jazz. In 2003, Dawn quit her job as a flight stewardess for Singapore Airlines to commit her time and energy into singing full-time, engaged vocal trainer Babes Conde (Philippines/Singapore) for jazz and pop vocal training and has not looked back since.

 

 

She has performed at shows and music festivals in several countries in the region and beyond, such as Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Brunei, Taiwan, Beijing and Los Angeles. Her hunger to better understand and execute her craft led her to New York for classes with Tania Travers, and the legendary Barry Harris and attended Master classes with Grammy award winning jazz vocalist, Kurt Elling. She recently completed her BA HONS in Jazz Performance with Lasalle College of the Arts (Singapore)/Goldsmiths University (London).

She has since released 2 albums. Her first album, All in Good Time (2009) sees her performing exciting covers of jazz classics from Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Cannonball Adderley as well as Brazilian classics from the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Maria Rita. It also features 2 track remixes done by producers Kaye and Munir Alsagoff of AlterCopy. This release has gotten the support of Singapore’s radio stations, one of which is Nu-Jazz radio station Lush99.5fm, of which she had several interviews with.

And in October 2010, Dawn toured Mexico with highly esteemed Cuban jazz pianist Gabriel Hernandez. This collaboration lead to a recording session of the duo that following year. Dawn’s 2nd album, Hush Now (2016) is a collection of intimate jazz ballads set to paint both the harsh and beautiful the landscapes of love.

Dawn regularly appears in music festivals, club dates and events in Singapore and around the region, notably The Mosaic Music Festival, Singapore Jazz Festival and Tai Chung Jazz Festival, Olympic Games 2008 (Beijing), Formula One Grand Prix (Singapore), Singapore Fashion Festival, Singapore Youth Olympic Games and The World Gourmet Summit.
